1.4

Broad to de Villiers, FOUR, seconds ... half volley which de Villiers creams between cover and extra cover

1.5

Broad to de Villiers, FOUR, Broad drops slightly short and de Villiers leans back and heaves that over midwicket ...a one-bounce four. The crowd goes wild.

4.2

Broad to de Villiers, no run, outside off stump at 82mph, de Villiers, who is either cautious or utterly carefree with little in between, leaves

4.3

Broad to de Villiers, FOUR, loose drive, a thick edge and that scurries away for four

4.4

Broad to de Villiers, no run, another flashing drive but nowhere near the ball

4.5

Broad to de Villiers, FOUR, half volley and driven through extra cover, a lovely stroke and he really middled that ... he couldn;t have asked for Broad to give him one more in the slot

4.6

Broad to de Villiers, 1 leg bye, slower ball, de Villiers misses, Broad start to run for the ball as it bobbles into the leg side, decides to appeal and falls over mid-pitch in the confusion

6.3

6.4

Broad to Boucher, 1 run, push and run to Snape at extra cover, well stopped but good running between the wickets

6.5

Broad to Kemp, 1 run, short, no timing in the pull and the ball apologetically wheezes about two-thirds of the way to the boundary, well picked up and only the one

6.6

Broad to Boucher, no run, beaten by movement away off the seam

South Africa 49/3   SCJ Broad 3-0-25-2

18.1

Broad to Philander, OUT, the ball pitches outside off; Philander, looking to pull, goes down on one knee and drags an inside edge on to off-stump

18.2

Broad to van der Wath, 1 run, driven out to long-off

Broad to JA Morkel, 1 run, deliberate full toss, the batsman fends his hands higher and jabs his glove down on it, the ball moving down to gully for a quick single

18.4

Broad to van der Wath, 2 wides, a very wide outside off - in line with the outside line, in fact and they take the single to boot

18.4

Broad to JA Morkel, FOUR, on leg and pulled exceptionally hard through square

18.5

Broad to JA Morkel, no run, full and wide, crashes a cut down into the ground

18.6

Broad to JA Morkel, FOUR, full toss and flatbatted high in the air to Schofield on the long-on boundary who fluffs with one hand, the ball then bounces and moves on to the rope. Broad is a man unamused
